Player Notes
Indians manager Terry Francona stated Wednesday that Michael Brantley (shoulder) does not currently have a timetable for his return.

Advice: "There's no timetable listed, because there isn't one. It's completely on how he feels," Francona said. "Between Michael and the trainers and myself, we'll get together and we'll walk through this thing." Brantley was placed on the disabled list earlier this month with a case of right shoulder fatigue. That is the same shoulder that underwent offseason surgery. A recent MRI found no additional damage in the recovering wing, but there is some lingering inflammation. An early June return seems possible.

Michael Brantley was given an anti-inflammatory injection for his right shoulder on Tuesday.

Advice: Cleveland placed Brantley on the 15-day disabled list on May 14, retroactive to May 10, after he complained of fatigue in his surgically-repaired shoulder. A checkup exam with Brantley's surgeon Tuesday went smoothly and the hope is he will feel well enough to return when first eligible. Marlon Byrd, Rajai Davis, and Jose Ramirez have been seeing action in left field.

An MRI taken Friday on Michael Brantley's surgically-repaired right shoulder showed no new damage.

Advice: But the star outfielder is experiencing fatigue in that shoulder and so the Indians have placed him on the 15-day disabled list as a precautionary measure. Brantley was batting just .231 with a .561 OPS out of the gate and will probably go on a lengthy minor league rehab assignment before returning to the Indians' active roster. We'd look for an early-June activation.

Indians placed OF Michael Brantley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 10, with right shoulder fatigue.

Advice: Brantley had missed three games due to lingering fatigue in the surgically-repaired shoulder, and the Indians finally decided they couldn't wait any longer. The stint may be a good thing for the 28-year-old, who was hitting just .231 with a .561 OPS since coming back in late April. The team should shed some more light on a potential timeline shortly.
